Kennedy Home Movie

Documentary filmmaker Rory Kennedy’s “Indian Point:

Imagining the Imaginable” is getting some publicity in advance of its

premiere on HBO tomorrow. It has to do with the vulnerability to terrorists

of the Indian Point nuclear power plant on the Hudson just north of New York

City. Entergy, the company that owns Indian Point, feels sucker-punched by

the film. According to the company, representatives of Ms. Kennedy’s

production company never told Entergy in initial interviews that the film

would have any connection to the environmental group Riverkeeper, nor its

director Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. — the brother of the filmmaker. An Entergy

representative tells me that the company confronted Ms. Kennedy about the

fact that she didn’t disclose her close personal relationship with

Riverkeeper in their negotiations, she told the company that her brother

wouldn’t be involved in reviewing or promoting the documentary.

Well: a screening and reception scheduled for Washington tonight invites

guests “to join Rory Kennedy and RFK, Jr.” for the party. Sounds like

Entergy made the right decision not to participate in the making of this

film.
